Abstract:

Abstract: Based on ethnographic research conducted at California State University Long Beach, this thesis examines the adaptations that Muslim students make in both their eating habits and their forming of social connections in order to meet their specific religious requirements while attending university. The findings of this research are adaptation in eating halal according to student perception, limited halal food options on campus; religious reasons for maintaining a strict halal diet; varying student perceptions of the meaning of halal; the high price of halal food off-campus; students’ mixed feelings about eating non-halal food; and the effects of religion on making friendships and forming social connections with both Muslims and non-Muslims. This research explores adaptive strategies that the Muslim students employ, as well as these students’ attitudes regarding eating non-halal food on campus. This research provides valuable insight into how the university can best serve the needs of an under-served specific minority group on campus, and by extension, the needs of other potentially-underserved groups.
